    My model is Sony KP-57WM500, 57" Rear Projection. It shuts off by itself! I can turn it back on, but then it repeats the cycle! Is it the power supply?

    I have Sony KP-57HW40 model. It shuts off by itself too. It can be turned on with the red and white strip screen, but shut itself off again.

You can try the suggestion on the site I posted below. This site addresses a specific problem that tends to be fairly common in some Sony sets. Only try this if your sure that the problem your having is the same problem described in the site. Look at the picture of the screen on the site and see if that looks like your screen. The set on the site is red but it could be Green or Blue also. If you set won't stay on, you may have to turn the appropriate knob down slightly in order to get the set to stay on. Although he mentions this will fix a convergence problem, the fix described has nothing to do with convergence. The symptoms you are describing do not sound like a convergence issue. I am however a little concerned about the smell. Another thing is, after the set shuts off the Led will blink a code. For example it may flash 8 times then pause and repeat. You can Google this to find out more info on the problem. Many things can go wrong with TV's, I recommend you do as much research as you can to narrow it down. Good luck, here is the site.

Sounds like the green picture tube is defective. To confirm you can take the front grille and door off and tap the green tube lightly with something plastic, and not to touch any of the adjustment controls to confirm.

My TV did the same thing for a couple of years. It is the precursor to the capasitor going out on the DM board. The good thing is that the capacitors only cost around 4 dollars if you can soldier them yourself.

Please help with tv! green blinking light wont stop and tv wont turn on


Here's something that might also be useful. After you turn on the set, and get the regular red blinky lights, hold down the Device and Menu buttons together for about 5 seconds.
The Power light will start to flash in a two digit sequence.
please post your error code
